SportsArt’s Energy-Producing Treadmill to Debut at CES
SportsArt, a sustainable fitness equipment maker, is bringing out the Verde G690, an energy-producing, non-motorized treadmill, at CES 2019. The treadmill is SportsArt’s latest machine to join its ECO-POWR line; it uses a hybrid electromagnetic and mechanical braking system and generates electricity during a workout.
It harnesses human power to generate up to 200 watt-hours of utility-grade electricity. A patented micro-inverter, similar to those found in solar panels and wind turbines, “cleans” the generated power into a form that is usable by other devices plugged into a facility's electrical grid.
The treadmill’s technology also features: an app to track performance and watts generated; the ability to regulate electronic speed and resistance; and a USB charger. Its slatted belt is said by the company to be easy on the feet, and the device accommodates all styles of ambulating, including walking, jogging, running, sprinting, and sled-pushing (with that mode offering multiple resistance levels).
The treadmill also features SportsArt’s SA Well+ System, a home screen that provides real-time data on energy generated by the user, so everyone testing the machine can track the amount of energy they are producing.
The device will be on display along with other ECO-POWR products at the Sands Expo.
